Zeglin Lab: Molecular Microbial Ecology @ Kansas State University Biology

PEOPLE --- PROJECTS --- PUBLICATIONS


Research in the lab centers on microbial ecology, microbial diversity and nutrient cycling processes in streams and soils. Main goals include the integration of methods on both microbial and ecosystem scales, while addressing questions in managed and 'natural' systems within the context of disturbance and global change.
